|Description:||A new score for carillon + electronics composed by University Carillonneur Joey Brink and composition student Ted Moore. The piece derives its inspiration from—and asks listeners to reflect upon—the original Fermi test, exploring the twenty-four minutes after the pile achieved criticality, and the final four minutes where the experiment shifted from critical to slightly super-critical. The work can be experienced at Rockefeller Chapel or by Henry Moore’s Nuclear Energy sculpture, which was unveiled on December 2, 1967, the 25th anniversary of the experiment.
Presented by UChicago Arts.
